>RC - Are all these pages you have listed from the same site?
Yes, it is a 'guide' about 3900 cities and towns, 1 page per town. I wrote a script that submitted them under Snap's proper "Local" category after receiving deep-linking clearance from an editor. It haven't tallied recently, but it appears that approx. 20 percent have migrated to the main directory.
>Is there a way to get more than those 5 in the Live Directory? Does the spider pick up more pages/keywords automatically?
No, as far as I know, Snap doesn't index any pages other than those submitted.
Yes, it indexes the title and the description -but I suggest keeping them short and targeted to encourage the editors to let it pass as submitted. Editors are involved in the process, and sometimes change what I've submitted, but I spent a lot of time paring the title and text down to the bare bones, and they've rarely made any substantial changes.
